I have a sailboatWell, when it gets too expensive to buy fuel for your boat, you'll be an on shore fisherman.
Again I would like to point out, the issue is they WANT to drill within 50 -100 miles or the coast. At the current speed of the Gulf Stream(around 4.9 Knots), if a rig is 50 miles off shore and has an accident, in 10 hours it just hit your shore. All the marine species between that accident and the shoe are dead, dying or have gotten the hell out of dodge. Now I don't know about you, but not many people want to swim in oil with dead fish on vacation.In my experience, tourists are too focused on what is happening within 100 feet of them, not what is happening 100 miles from them. They are too interested in where they should have dinner, not what's churning up oil 50 miles out.
